Richard Reece MD who blogs at Medinnovation has some profound quotes from Thornton Wilder. From it derives the title of this article. Thorton Wilder, a quintessential American writer, the author of The Bridge of Saint Luis Rey, Our Town, The Skin of Our Teeth, and the inspiration of Hello Dolly !.
Some of you will disagree with our view of the Affordable Care Act.
Wilder was a true patriot – a believer that America had created the most dynamic, creative, individualistic, and freedom-loving nation on earth.
ObamaCare is the central battle over the future direction of our country. It cannot stand. It is a looming disaster for patients- especially seniors- for our economy and for the future of health care in America. It will lead to rationing and government control over health are decisions. The quality of care will decline. Medical progress will slow. And the resulting third-rate health care system will likey bankrupt our country. The federal government is already racing toward a budgetary train wreck, and ObamaCare will only speed us down the tracks.”
Fortunately ObamaCare as it now is written will self-destruct and in the next five years the American Culture will de-construct it.
